RM2 International, a vertically integrated innovator in pallet development, management and supply, chief technology officer, David Simmons will present RM2ELIoT, the Electronic Link to the Internet of Things at this year's GSMA Global Mobile IoT Summit at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain on Feb. 26, 2017. The presentation will take place at Hesperia Tower Hotel at 3:00 p.m.

AT&T, Orange and other IoT leading companies will also be presenting their plans to launch and commercialize Mobile IoT networks in 2017, along with Huawei, a leading ecosystem provider, at the Summit.

RM2 International has developed an IoT smart pallet solution designed to optimize supply chain visibility by providing granular data for segments of the supply chain from a pallet perspective. The solution comprises of a hardwearing composite pallet, RM2's BLOCKPal™ and RM2ELIoT, a fully integrated IoT location monitoring device based on the LTE-M cellular network. The RM2ELIoT electronic module is designed to last up to a decade on a single power source, while the BLOCKPal pallet is designed to last over a hundred pallet trips before needing repairs.

"By 2020, it's projected over 50 billion supply chain devices will be IoT-enabled," said David Simmons, Chief Technology Officer for RM2. "RM2ELIoT gives our clients the ability to capture and analyse large amounts of geo-location data in their supply chains down to the pallet level. This level of visibility and granularity can reveal new ways of managing supply chains, identifying bottlenecks, handling product recalls, improving security and highlighting many other supply chain inefficiencies."

In 2016, RM2 joined AT&T's LTE-M commercial pilot along with several enterprises and technology providers. AT&T launched North America's first LTE-M enabled commercial site in the San Francisco market to support the testing of AT&T's LTE-M Low-Power Wide-Area network in October 2016. AT&T recognizes RM2 for its participation in the commercial LTE-M Pilot.
